My only regret of the week is that I did not capture the grill-out lunch we had for Father’s Day at my in-laws. It was delicious and Critter ate a hot dog for the first time (as well as his body weight in cherries) and just loved it.
Friday – Lasagna, Caesar Salad, French Bread, Blueberry Buckle with Vanilla Ice Cream
Liz and Lee came for dinner. Mom made her awesome lasagna (crazy that we never ate this prior to 2017) and Liz brought her delightful blueberry buckle for dessert. Liz has been the bearer of desserts since I was little and her buckle is such a good one.
Saturday – Roasted Jalapeno and Chorizo Queso, Cheesy Guacamole, Stretchy Artichoke, Spinach, and Buffalo Chicken Dip all from Cravings, Celery, Carrot Sticks, Tortilla Chips, Pita Chips, Baguette, Salad with Apple, Cheese and Cider Vinaigrette
Mike and Jillian were coming for dinner and the only thing I wanted to eat were…dips? And when I texted Jillian (who is also pregnant) she was like…yeah. Dips. Let’s go to that place. So we did.
Shout-out to Jillian for bringing a salad so that we could actually call this a meal.
Sunday – Steak, Hashbrowns, Layer Salad
Dad really wanted to have hashbrowns for dinner again.
Monday – Pad Grapow Chicken from Cravings, Steamed Rice with a Soft Fried Egg, Asparagus
I finally took 10 seconds to read through this recipe when I was meal planning this week and it is SUPER easy. I only added the egg because Chrissy referenced something to do with eggs in the recipe explanation. It was a good decision. Also, Critter ate about seven bites of chicken so I’d call it a winner.
Wednesday – Sesame Chicken Noodles from Cravings with Pea Pods
We made these. For the first time on Thursday, Critter decided that he would eat long noodles (he was a macaroni noodle-only guy before this point) and was scarfing the leftovers down, so I guess we’ll be making this more often.
Miscellaneous – Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
I made this for Father’s day because Dad loves banana bread. And then I ate 75% of the loaf and I AM NOT ASHAMED YOU GUYS.
